Former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre announced that he has started the process to be tested by USADA so that he can be eligible to fight in the UFC again.

With his intent to fight and prove his dominance, many are wondering who GSP will be fighting.

In a recent interview with Bloody Elbow, “Rush” was asked if he thinks he will ever fight Conor McGregor, and Georges never really gave a definitive answer.

From Bloody Elbow:

You think there’s a chance that you will ever meet McGregor? You say that you can make LW, and obviously that’s the biggest money fight.

GSP: McGregor is pretty big, huh? I don’t know how he cuts all that weight, it’s unbelievable. He’s about my size, he walks around I think between 180, 185, I walk around 186, 187, 188.

I think he says he walks around at 169 (I was wrong, Chael Sonnen says McGregor told him he’s 172 eight days before weigh-in, Diego Sanchez says he rehydrated to 174 for Aldo).

GSP: No that’s not true. That’s not true. He walks around 180, 185.

I don’t think he’s coming back to FW.

GSP: I don’t see that either. It’s very bad for your health, for your organs, at long term.

McGregor is a big guy. He’s a huge guy – for his weight class, he’s huge. I don’t understand how some guys cut like that – I mean, I have an idea.

A lot of Parsley?

GSP: I have an idea, but maybe they know something that I don’t.

Since Conor McGregor doesn’t seem to have a problem with fighting at 170, there is always that option.
